Anyone near Newark DE with VAG-COM

Hey Guys,

Just picked up an 05 GTI and failed emissions due to readiness status. Want to see if I can troubleshoot it. Hopefully its as easy as an ecu reset and I don't need to fix some equipment.

If you'd be able to help out, shoot me a call at 215-896-1817. I'm right near UDel.

Thanks,

Adam

why dont you go to autozone and get it scanned for free then report back with your code #'s. if you need to reset the ecu, just unplug the battery for 10-15min

Because if i do all that (and was planning to), I want to be sure that the car will only have a maximum of 1 not ready so i dont have to wait at the dmv for 2 hours for nothing. VAG-COM will be able to confirm this.

Thanks for the input tho.

Driving is fun (compared to waiting in lines). If i can't find anything more local, i'll take you up on that.

Thanks for the offer!

Depending on where you are taking it for inspection. If you just clear the code you will need to drive the car for a 50 + miles. they check that you didn't just clear the code. Just food for thought. I have a Vag com but I am outside philly. Good luck.
